Chris Tromburg ~ Portland Bound!

Thrill of Autumn
Christina Tromburg

Multi~hued foliage so finely dressed,
The kick of a nip in the air.
A misty morn and a crunch underfoot,
Could there be a more welcome guest?

A vista of brilliance, oh, how we're blessed
A time for grateful reflection.
What greater thrill does the Autumn bring?
Yes! RIEU to our U.S. Northwest!!!





Portland bound ~ One more week!!! Margaret and I went to Andre’s concert in Seattle last year, along with my sister and her daughter. (Margaret is in the pink shirt, I’m in the blue) This year, we’re going to Portland and will be taking two others from Boise with us: Nancy and Susan. They are FAR crazier than we are ;-). My sister can’t make it this year, but we’ll have a great time, I’m sure! Even though our seats aren’t nearly as good as last year (we’re back in the corner - house left - and up one level), there’s always the encores! Susan said she would be brave enough to go down front toward the end. It will depend on what the Portland crowd is like. As I mentioned in my story last year, Margaret and I went to high school together, and we’ve known Nancy since early college days. Susan is Nancy’s neighbor, whom I’ve just met this year. Nancy, apparently, had been talking to her about her friend Chris’ crazy obsession with some Dutch classical group. Ha! She enthusiastically shared that she and her mother have been Rieu fans for years! Susan’s family is German on her mother's side. Her mother still lives there most of the time, and Susan was raised there but now lives in the States with her American husband and twin sons. We’re looking forward not only to the concert, but to all the folks we’ll meet in Portland. We’ll be back with a report AS SOON AS we can! ~ Chris T.

Hi Eileen & Jeanine Ann, I haven't talked to either of you for awhile. Hope everything is well for you back east. Toronto will be so amazing! Sue, you'll be there too, right? Glad you enjoyed the poem - thanks, I know more than one of us has had fun with a little word crafting inspired by our common interest... :-).
